Sports Saturdays: McClure Tennis Center To Open

April 11th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports SaturdayLoyola’s brand new tennis complex will be unveiled on Saturday at 11:30am, in time for the tennis teams to play Bucknell later in the day.

In a happy and well deserved twist, Loyola will be dedicating the new tennis center to the man who has been at the helm of the tennis program since 1979, and has earned over 700 wins during his tenure, Rick McClure.

The McClure Tennis Center is a stunning eight-court, lighted facility on the grounds of Ridley Athletic Complex. This new complex is only possible thanks to a generous, anonymous $3.2-million donation.

An opening reception will take place at 11:30am, and the dedication ceremony itself will start at 12:30pm. After the festivities end, the Hounds will play their first matches ever in the new complex when they play host to Bucknell.

All who attend are welcome to join McClure and the players in a post-match reception in the Class of 1968 Suite at Ridley.
